What are “Talk Moves”? Talk Moves are a way to encourage accountable talk with sentence starters to encourage students to engage in meaningful conversations. These conversations will help develop your students’ critical thinking skills, listening abilities, and retention. Talk Moves can be used in all subject areas, especially math. These Talk Move posters can be hung around your classroom as a reminder to students of effective sentence starters as they participate in group discussions, turn-n-talks, and math teams. The help sheet can be kept at students’ desks or in a small group for easy access to these sentence starters. Happy discussing!
